Australian 2013 Silver Lunar Snake

Perth Mint 2013 Lunar Snake

The 2013 Lunar Snake coins celebrate the Year of the Snake, the sixth animal in the 12 year cycle of the Chinese zodiac as part of Perth Mint Series 2 Lunar series.

That design shows a snake curled around the branch of a tree. Shown to the right of the reptile is the Chinese character for "Snake." The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mint mark is found on the reverse along with the inscription of "Year of the Snake."

As legal tender, obverses contain the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II along with the inscriptions of "Elizabeth II," "Australia" and "2013."
